I grew up in the Lowcountry of SC but have lived in Manhattan for the past 16 years. I finished this book on a flight home for the holidays and immediately found myself longing to revisit the rivers, creeks and beaches of my childhood. Though I wasn't particularly keen on encountering a great white during my upcoming visit, this story evoked a nostalgia in me I hadn't expected. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't thoroughly enjoy this quick read and the life lessons recounted in its pages. Thank you Michael McEachern for a story well-told!

"Hugo" is a wonderful little book that brings life back to a weary soul. With all the technology we struggle with each day, Michael McEachern, the author , takes you to a simpler time. Not a Huck Finn time, but an era when the old folks and young folks spoke to one-another . If you are a "baby-boomer," you should love this book. But there are no hippie mantras, no confusions about one's place in society, no Beatles, weed or LSD. It' s the story of friends who manage their way through life without having to question authority or tune in or turn on. As two boys go about their daily routine of crabbing, making a few bucks, and fishing, they run into Hugo, a giant shark that terrorizes the community. What tragedies lie ahead?

My family read this book aloud while on an island camping trip. By the end of the book, we thought we might have to stay there rather than face the waters that could hold a shark like Hugo. We nearly wished our days away to get to the nightly reading. We laughed and cried and decided to only fish from the shore! It was a great read and we all recommend it...from teenagers to forty-somethings.

Once I started reading I could not stop. What started as a typical fisherman's tale of the fish was "this big" turned into a tale that again confirms that I will never swim in the ocean. I had just about put Jaws out of my mind...thanks a lot! Great example of theatre of the mind and again, once I started reading I could not stop. You will enjoy this book!

It's been many years since I have been so moved by a book. This is the story of two young men coming of age . It's a story of life, death, friendship, courage, honesty,integrity and sacrifice. The book is magnificently written, truly beautifully done. This one will be remembered for my lifetime. I know that I will read if again like I have with books written by Buck and Steinbeck. I will now write something in a review that I have never said before---if you read only one book this year, make it this one.

This is a great story and well told. It kept me engaged to the finish. The work could have been even better with a little more editing.

A great fish tale! Two boys on a quest that will change their lives. South Carolina coastal islands, engaging characters, suspenseful to the end. Reminiscent of The Old Man and the Sea, Jaws and Stand by Me --- all rolled into one! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Hugo. A definite keeper! Two thumbs up!

This book was great from beginning to end. I read it in 2 days and could hardly put it down. It was well written and so very human. If it was true in its story it would be amazing and if it is fiction it is still spellbinding. It should be read by young and old and all those in between.

I would rate it as a 5 star book!
